Today's CC color combo is terrific! I had very vanilla cardstock which I used but none of the actual ink colors. The inks I subbed are creamy carmel, elegant eggplant and more mustard. My neutral inks are MFT natural and kraft.
I am focusing on Halloween/fall cards right now. I chose to make a Thankful for Fall (Thanksgiving) card. I used my SU Wonderfall set to create my main panel and to create my spatters, I used my most favorite LKR stamp. That stamp also added some more darks and lights to my main panel which is neat. I like working with burlap so I created a burlap frame* for my card. I added some, I think the color is eggplant, enamel dots and a SU Expressions "Thankful" die cut. To finish off my card I added a RAK acorn die cut that I stamped. I don't have the dies for this set but I sure wish I did! I popped it up with foam dots.
*To make the frame I cut one pc of burlap and one pc of scrap chipboard (food box.) I cut my SU very vanilla panel a bit bigger than the opening and after stamping it, I adhered it to the chipboard back, then adhered the burlap frame over the top. I then adhered the finished panel to a card base the same size.

I LOVE COLLAGE CARDS!!! They also scare the devil out of me! It's all the layers that are intimidating! YOU pulled this off like a pro! I love everything about this! There are so many things to look at...I LOVE that in a card! Beautifully done, my friend!!!

How did you do those leaves??? Those wood-grained leaves are awesome! Course I love the whole card - it is just beautiful and so fall looking.
